Although the Newport Common Burial Grounds records state that Joseph (2) is buried there, without a stone, that isn't necessarily the case. Just a few words on Newport research, from Vincent F. Luti's "Mallet & Chisel:Gravestone Carvers of Newport, Rhode Island, in the 18th Century," p. 8:"Genealogical research on colonial Newport is complicated by the poor state of many of the surviving documents, which were damaged during the Revolution. In 1778, after nearly three years of British occupation, Newport was under heavy siege. Walter Chaloner, the town sheriff and a Tory, fled on a British man-of-war with all the probate records, deeds, and vital records under his jurisdiction. His ship ran aground in New York Harbor. Retrieved from the watery depths, the boxes were left in storage for some time. When they were finally unpacked, the extent of the damage was revealed. The remnants of the records are now preserved in bound volumes at the Newport Historical Society, but the contents of any given page may be from different documents, often of different dates. Furthermore, almost all are faded to differing degrees of indecipherability..."Fully 1/2 or more of the documents were lost, so it's hard to draw many conclusions in Newport.
!SOURCE: Email from Charles M. Whipple, Jr., to Weldon Whipple, 4 Oct 2003. Charles writes: "I am now convinced that Lieutenant Governor Joseph Whipple Jr. was Anglican not Quaker. I received a reply from Harvard University finally. His son, William, graduated in 1749 at the head of his class. His biography notes that he was indeed Church of England as was Col. Joseph Whipple, his father. So, although Lieutenant Governor Joseph Whipple III and his mother, as well as some siblings may have been Quakers, at least it is now known that this was indeed a religiously mixed marriage."
Joseph Whipple Junior House, c. 1720, Middletown, R.I.
Philosopher/theologian George Berkeley purchased the house in 1728, built additions to the home, and renamed it "Whitehall".
